Tonight Danny slept with the other chickens while the chicks slept in the nesting box. I tried to coax one of the chicks to sleep with other older chicken, which did temp him. But Runt twirled around and pecked him. Weird thing is that the others chickens acctepted the chicks with sharing the same food, water, and near area when they are close to them. They haven't merged yet. But they don't alow them to cuddle at night?
Also, I know... My chickens group up at night. I'll take a picture tomorrow. They don't perch even when I found out that they needed perches and added some. Every night, even summer, they are just a feathery pillow of death and destruction, merged as one apex chicken. The only chickens that are on highter ground, on top of a nesting box, are 4 red sex link young chickens.
